Hushed hallways lead to European-inspired suites at The Eliot Hotel in fashionable Back Bay. Steps from the boutiques and restaurants of Newbury Street, bask in the warmth and comfort found in every nook of this traditionally elegant and romantic hotel. Two award-winning restaurants fueled by an acclaimed chef attract locals to this graceful retreat. Guests also enjoy 24-hour room service and a complimentary overnight shoeshine. Walk to Fenway Park, pubs and lobster houses, shopping, mass transit, museums and galleries.
Dining
The hip and hot sashimi bar Uni at The Eliot Hotel has made a name for itself with inventive Japanese fusion cuisine. Exotic Far East dishes and artful plates of raw fish pair with an exciting sake list. The Eliot Hotel's other dining gem, Clio takes French food and service to an exquisite level in an atmosphere reminiscent of a 1920s Parisian supper club. Heralded chef Ken Oringer heads up both Boston restaurant venues.

Indulge in 24-hour room service after the nightly turn down.

A pleaseant hotel

We went to visit our son who goes to school in the area. It was a very pleasant, older hotel. The customer service in the hotel great. I thought we had poor service from the staff in the hotel restaurant and bar. Very nice size room but the bathroom small. Very good location.

Lovely hotel, great location!

We only stayed one night at the Eliot, but we were VERY impressed with the service. They bent over backwards to help us with luggage, directions, getting our car up so we could make a timely departure etc. The room was very nice (though the view had nothing to recommend it) and frankly my only real complaint was that the bed was kind of mushy-I like a firmer mattress and so does my wife. As for Value, its really hard to say-its not cheap, but its really well located if you want a nice boutique back bay hotel. I would absolutely stay there again.

Great place!

Lived in Boston for 5 years - this was perfectly central to EVERYTHING! Easy to get to Newbury, Pru, shopping, the T, Kenmore Square/Fenway. Valet was great and didn't think of car the whole weekend.

OK, but not wonderful

The hotel was very conveniently situated near shopping & transportation, and the area was upscale. The people at the front desk were very nice. The suite, on the 3rd floor, was much smaller than expected. We initially had another suite and that was also not cleaned well and smelled of cigarette smoke (in this non-smoking hotel), so we were moved to a different one, which was better but still had some minor cleanliness issues. However, the bed was extremely comfortable and the linens were fresh.

Outstanding Hotel... Best Value!

This is a boutique type of hotel with a suite set-up (pun intended). This is a very romantic place, with a more traditional motif. The rooms are large, the bedroom is behind French doors and the bathroom is all marble. Rooms are very comfortable and quiet. Clio is inside the hotel - and I think it's the best restaurant in Boston - they never disappoint! Location is outstanding! I recommmend highly.

Good Location

The hotel was in a great spot for shopping on Newbury Street (a mere block away) and a short 10 minute walk to Fenway. Our room (409) was very quiet and restful, especially with the black-out drapery closed to block out the light. The room was decent, but a bit on the small size. The bathroom was large and made almost entirely of marble and tile. Carpet could use updating, but that is really the only complaint. I would stay here again, and recommend to others.

Perfect five night stay

Arrived in Boston on red eye, tired and in need of sleep. The Eliot had a room ready for us to check in at 10:30 a.m. We were upgraded from a basic room to a lovely suite. Location perfect for our Hynes convention center 4 day meeting, just a few minutes walk away. Room very pretty, bed ultra comfortable. Everything in room was is perfect working order, very clean, dust free, etc. Doormen and staff very helpful as far as restaurant suggestions, directions, maps, etc. Did not get to eat in their restaurants, which I heard were very good. Will definitely stay again on my next trip to Boston. A perfect stay!!
